Green Check Mark missing (sort of) on Taskbar Icon?
I recently installed Norton Security Premium (version 188.8.131.52) on two Acer Aspire E 15 laptops, both running Windows 10 Home. The Norton installation seemed to go flawlessly on both laptops which are both also running copies of Malwarebytes, version 184.108.40.20665. One laptop has a premium version of Malwarebytes while the other is running a copy of Malwarebytes free. All appears to be well with Norton and it is registered as the protection in the Windows Security Center. The only issue I have noticed (on both laptops) is that the little green circle with the white check mark does not show on the icon in the task bar at all times like it does on my Windows 7 desktop. The icon itself is always there with a yellow circle and white check mark, however, it only shows a green circle with white check mark when the Norton interface is actually opened. It shows up immediately upon opening Norton's interface but then it goes away again as soon as you close the interface. When looking at the interface itself, Norton shows that I am protected and that nothing is needing attention. I even ran Norton's Auto-fix and it found nothing amiss. Since I am new to using Windows 10 I am wondering if this is normal behavior for Norton when installed on Windows 10? The only time the green check mark shows up is when the Norton interface is open. In trying to figure it out myself I should note that I have turned off Fast Start Up on both laptops and rebooted several times. I have also toggled around with the boot time protection setting trying that in all three positions: Off, Normal & Aggressive. It makes no difference what setting the boot time protection is set to, this issue remains the same on both laptops. So my question is this - is this normal and if not, any suggestions on what might be wrong and what to do about it? Thank you in advance for any assistance offered.
